Coating building blocks for synthetic and alternative materials

Stahl offers manufacturers the building blocks to formulate and enhance coating solutions for multiple products and applications. We can provide ready-made solutions or customized options for your specific needs and performance standards, including for newly created innovative materials.

NuVera®: Renewable carbon-based polyurethanes

One way for fashion, footwear, and upholstery manufacturers to improve their environmental impact is to replace fossil fuel-based chemistry with renewable feedstocks. Stahl’s NuVera® range of renewable carbon polyurethanes can help you do exactly that.

Stahl Evo®: Responsible solutions for optimal performance

Our Stahl EVO® technologies combine optimal performance with responsible chemistry. Our portfolio of non-hazardous solutions complies with ZDHC MRSL standards and is suitable for all synthetic or alternative substrates. Stahl EVO® contains a wide range of our coating and surface technologies.

Bio-based PolyMatte® Matting solution for luxury designs

PolyMatte® is a responsible matting option that enables manufacturers focused on high-end apparel and interior design to achieve a high-quality beautiful black effect, as well as high resistance and a soft touch.

Stahl Stay Clean®: Surface retention for interiors and furniture

Stahl Stay Clean® helps to protect pale-colored synthetic surfaces from staining, scuffing, and soiling. Suitable for mobility interiors, furniture, and accessories, this technology makes cleaning and maintaining products easy and provides them with a longer lifespan.

Polyurethane coatings technologies

Our polyurethane (PU) coating portfolios are suitable for synthetic surfaces and fabrics. Our high-solids PermaQure®, water-based Permutex®, and mild solvent Permuthane® solutions help manufacturers meet aesthetic and performance needs.

Carbodiimide crosslinkers

Stahl’s carbodiimide crosslinkers enable manufacturers to enhance coating qualities while offering a more responsible alternative to traditional crosslinkers. Friendly labeled and with a long pot life, our crosslinkers are designed to support coating strength, resistance, flexibility, and endurance.
